About Me

My photo
I was motivated to start a blog by reading all the wonderful talented individual's who have blogs out there. So, I want to make this blog about everyone who reads it. My family and God always comes first in my life. I want to share my experiences and in turn, hope to get feedback and ideas from you. I love unique things, I adore anything that sparkles (not over the top though) I love decorating, cooking, gardening, photography and shopping. My number one passion is photography! To me it becomes more than a picture, it can become a piece of art, or a beautiful memory. Decorating, though I am not a professional, and don't claim to be, has been a part of my life since I was very young, and just love searching and shopping for new ideas and incorporate the old, such as Mid-Century Modern and Hollywood Regency with contemporary. Living close to the Gulf of Mexico in Florida, and being of Hispanic heritage, I love cooking Mexican food, and love to share my authentic recipes. Though I live in Florida, my heart is in the desert southwest, and hope that my family and I will return there very soon…keep your fingers crossed that my prayers are answered SOON!!!

Christmas Season...

The holidays are here....what a wonderful feeling this time of years brings, the beautiful memories of years gone by, and the news ones we are creating today.  My husband and I went to a park here locally today, one for which we haven't been in almost 27 years, it is right on the water, and it is so peaceful and beautiful.  Upon driving into the park, we came across this beautiful tree of red berries, don't have a clue as to what they are, so if anyone knows, please tell me.  They reminded me so much of the berries on holly, I just had to get some pictures.   When I came home and downloaded the pictures, I noticed this particular picture, with the white Bokeh in the background, reminded me of snow.  Now, being I live in Central Florida on the Gulf Coast, and it was 74 degrees out today, it obviously isn't snow.  But, though I am already totally in the Christmas spirit, just a little simple picture such as this, just brought so many memories back of those cold winters when we lived in Ohio and then in Utah.  Now that all, well most of my Christmas decorating is done (took me over 4 days),  I am so ready to get out there and start shopping and enjoying all the wonderful sights and sounds, and oh yeah, those beautiful fragrances of hot cocoa, pine, and all the others that are so symbolic of this magical time of year.  As I drive around town, I am so surprised at how many people have really gotten into the spirit this year and have decorations up...hope it that way where you live too.  Enjoy every minute of these beautiful days leading up to the holidays, and happy shopping...
